Chase Elliott threw a big block with less than a lap to go in Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, sending Corey LaJoie into the outside wall and triggering a race ending crash.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at the race weekend from Atlanta, including:

-LaJoie came close to one of the biggest upsets in modern NASCAR history after leading late at Atlanta Motor Speedway.  But a last lap move to block by Elliott instead sent the Georgia native to victory lane.

-It was an all-Georgia weekend at Atlanta, with Winston, Georgia's Austin Hill scoring the victory on Saturday in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

-Tyler Reddick surprised the NASCAR world on Tuesday with the annoucement that he will be moving to 23XI racing in 2024.

Plus, we'll preview this weekend's race at Loudon.
